Making your own labels just got easier
Whether you need waterproof, durable labels or something eye-catching for the retail shelf, the L502 is our most versatile printer ever. Pigment and dye inks each have their own advantages. Get the best of both worlds with the L502.
All-steel industrial design, improved toolbox functionality, 2x faster printing*, and durable pigment inks make the L502 extremely rugged and versatile.
*As compared to the original L501 Color Label Printer
- Industrial build quality
- Dual-ink capability (dye & pigment)
- Separate CMYK inks for economy
- BS5609-certified pigment inks
Pigment and Dye-based Labels
Pigment-based prints are highly resistant to the challenges of moisture, abrasion, sun-fading, and extreme temperature. This makes the L502 perfect for packaging requiring GHS compliance, as well as those with high exposure to moisture, such as beverages and bath products.
The L502’s dye-based prints are high-impact, colorful, and vibrant, making them ideal for prime labeling applications, such as in retail environments.
Enjoy the durability of pigment and the vibrancy of dye inks in the same printer. The L502’s ink interchangeability offers a level of versatility never before experienced in the label printing world.
BS5609 Certified for Durable Labels
The L502 has been tested and certified to produce BS 5609-compliant and GHS (Globally Harmonized System) labels, which helps keep chemical manufacturers in compliance with packaging and transportation requirements. This testing evaluates the permanence of the print through abrasion and submersion in salt water for a period of 90 days.
Built for Industrial Use
The heavy-duty construction of the L502 color label printer includes an all-steel industrial cover, with a window for print bed visibility and status monitoring. It also includes improved sensors which allow for greater compatibility with specialty media, such as reflective metallic material. In addition to the standard roll-fed model, the L502 is also available in a fanfold-compatible version (F502) with the same build quality and feature set.
Improvements extend to the L502 Color Label Printer toolbox, allowing for increased control, including ‘Pause’ and ‘Cut’ functions. Firmware upgrades can also now be more easily performed.
Versatility Meets Economy
Not only is the L502 one of the most versatile label printers on the market, it offers great value for small to mid-sized label applications. Separate CMYK ink cartridges contribute to a lower cost per label, since only colors that are empty need to be replaced.
